"We will not build a shopping mall in Taksim, but a mosque."
"I do not take orders from marauders." His word "çapulcu" [marauder] used to refer to the protesters ironically embraced by the protesters themselves. This argument had an unexpected impact on the internet community. Protesters all around the world started to use the word "chappul" to refer to themselves and the verb "to chappul" to express the act of protesting. Further, Turkish government has gone to the point of changing the meaning of the word "çapulcu" in national Turkish dictionary.
The (old) meaning of the word "çapulcu" in national Turkish dictionary: A person who steals, robs, and plunders someone else's property."
After government alters the name of the word "çapulcu": "A person who acts against and distruptives the regime."
